Took 31 years to find out we lost you

Found Life Magazine from June 1969 in summer of 2000. Saw your picture. Sorry you didn't make Lt. I never knew. Left Vietnam 3 months earlier and lost touch with the guys. Honor to have served under you. Now have your picture with the other guys on my wall. Rest in Peace Sir. You are in good company. Semper Fi.

For 1LT. John Abbott, USMC, who hailed from Hammond, Indiana!!!!!!!

Goodbye, America's heroes, we have shamefully failed to stand by you, for all the wrong reasons which had tempted us aside! Now we must pay the price for letting those who survived down, as well knowing some who didn't have to die have died! We must honor them every day when we see their names upon the Wall! And from every corner of the land, they answered to the call! Every soldier, sailor, airman, and MARINE and Coast Guardsman, too...they all gave their lives so we could live beneath the old Red, White, and Blue!...for those who've gone before, we say "WELL DONE! Be thou at peace!" We, the people of America, and of Hammond, salute our young hero, Lieutenant Abbott...whose devotion to DUTY...whose devotion to HONOR...and ABOVE ALL!!!!....whose devotion to GOD and our COUNTRY!...the land that he loved...the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave...will never...I say again, will NEVER be extinguished from our minds!!!!!!
